MPF Event

An extra ball was just lit. This is a good event to use to start your extra ball lit mode, to turn on an extra ball light, to play the “get that extra ball” sound, etc.

Note that this event is posted if an extra ball is lit during play and also when a player’s turn starts if they have a lit extra ball.

See also the extra_ball_(name)_lit for a similar event that is only posted when an extra ball is lit during play, and not if the player starts their turn with the extra ball lit.

This event does not have any keyword arguments
